You write very well!


One thing: All award shows are rigged/corrupt.


Modern Family is the best show on TV. It has great acting, writing, and directing. It is one of the only smart comedies on TV, a place where brainless shows like Two and A Half Men and The Office rule. I have nothing against Community, but Modern Family is far better.


NCIS left out again. Year-after-year it is the highest rated show on TV...year- after- year it is ignored by the critics and award shows.


Yes Christina Hendricks!


still, i just feel like with all the amazing comedies on right now, and modern family is simply not up there.


@kay - Community won best comedy! That's awesome! I think the actors and actresses that did win were deserving, I'm okay with that. If Jim Parsons had one then I would have been annoyed LOL


@kay: Community did win Best Comedy. That's no small feat.


OH COME ON! really, modern family again?! Why do gillian jacobs, danny pudi, joel mc cale, alison brie NEVER get the recognition they deserve?!
